The Many Ways To Create Landscape Lighting

With the right type of landscape lighting illuminating your outdoor space, we think you can enjoy your yard and landscape for longer after sundown.

As you’ve probably noticed, the autumn evenings are starting to get darker sooner with earlier sunsets. Darkening skies usually tell us to go indoors where there’s enough light to go about our lives. With the right type of landscape lighting illuminating your outdoor space, we think you can enjoy your yard and landscape for longer after sundown. Plus, you aren’t short on options either. Read on for a few ideas about how Honeysuckle Nursery & Design can create a beautiful landscape lighting design for your home.

Path Lighting

Lighting up the pathways in and around your home landscape is both a practical and stunning way to brighten up your outdoor areas. By lining the sides of walkways, driveways, stepping stones, and more, you can add a touch of safety and visibility to these pathways with landscape lighting. Our landscape professionals can help you determine the optimal number and placement of lights to achieve a beautifully lit path.


Uplighting in landscape lighting is similar to spotlighting. That is, the light shines from below to emphasize structures and features. Many homeowners light to show off their home exteriors with uplighting lining their home. You can also achieve a similar statement effect while getting a sufficient amount of ambient light by placing them underneath outdoor columns and big trees.

Lighting for Hardscapes and Structures

People are more likely to spend time on their decks and patios, even during the autumn evenings. Therefore, it makes sense to think about landscape lighting options that will provide more light in and around your hardscape areas. Consider installing step or rail lighting to your deck stairs and guardrails. If you have an overhead structure such as a pergola, string lighting can provide ample lighting while setting a cozy ambiance. Further, you may want to talk to your hardscape contractor about installing uplighting for an outdoor fireplace or below your outdoor kitchen counters.

Near Water Features

Have you ever seen a lake or the sea under brilliant moonlight? It’s quite the soothing sight. You can bring that sense of tranquility to your yard with landscape lighting! If you have a water feature, such as a pond, fountain, or pool, consider installing a lighting system around it. Seeing the gentle and glowing light reflect off the water surface could give you a new appreciation of your backyard water feature.
